On October 2nd 2007, Nuttall replaced Kim Medcalf in the London production of Cabaret ("Amy Nuttall who bears an uncanny likeness to Liza Minnelli as Sally Bowles - big, sad eyes, petite, bird-like face absolutely communicates the wayward, desperate essence of a young woman striving to have the time on her life in the quietly repressed knowledge that death may be just round the corner" The Daily Telegraph) at the Lyric Theatre, transferring directly from her role in Boeing Boeing. In April 2008, Nuttall's initial six month contract was extended until the production's closure on June 21st.
